[texts]Pobreza, exclusão social e modernidade - uma introdução ao mundo contemporaneo - Simon Schwartzman
Augurium Editora, São Paulo, 2004 English version available here. Este livro trata da modernidade (um antigo conceito, apesar do nome), e de seu impacto sobre a pobreza e a exclusão social no século 21. Uma das primeiras referências a esse conceito consta de um texto do século 17, "La querelle des anciens et des modernes", um debate literário sobre tradição e inovação na arte. Mas suas implicações eram muito mais amplas: a arte deveria ser uma constante reencenação das tradições ...

[texts]The Institutionalization of Modernity: Shocks and Crises in Germany and Sweden - Erik Ringmar
This article asks why German political history has been so full of upheavals whereas Swedish political history has been comparatively calm. This is particularly curious given that the shocks the two countries have experiences -- modernization, industrialization, etc -- are similar. For some reason, however, these shocks were not translated into crises in the case of Sweden, whereas in the case of Germany they were...

A cross-cultural studies of colonizations from Morocco mid 20th century to the present day situation in Iraq. I found this in a book my uncle published and unfortunately this edition is out of print already! So he sent me the pdf to put online here until future reprints are undertaken.

[texts]Leo Strauss on Nietzsche's "Beyond Good & Evil" - Leo Strauss (1899 - 1973)
One of Strauss' last essays, offering a very rich and condensed interpretation of Nietzsche's thought as a whole by way of a "Note on the Plan of Beyond Good & Evil". The ambiguous place of Nature in Nietzsche's thought and the importance of the 'Eternal Return of the Same' is discussed. Strauss simply lays bare the fundamental experience at the heart of modern thought - and hence existentialism & nihilism.

[texts]Martin Heidegger - Der Spiegel Interview 1966 (English translation): - Martin Heidegger (interview 1966)
This is the famous "Der Spiegel Interview" from 1966 in which Heidegger discusses the current crisis of nihilism and his rejection of some kind of fusion of East and West. A return to, and a resuscitation of the Western Tradition is here anticipated as essential. Heidegger also here gives some further information which may help one to think about his motives in 1933 and thereafter. It is suggested that this piece be read in conjunction with the essay "On Existentialism", by Leo Strauss, also ava...
